    I've noticed that several posters here advocate the use of EASY START when problems arise. So today I bought a couple of cans from my local Tesco (Hove), on offer, reduced from £4.00 per can to just £1.00 per can. They probably think no one uses it in summer. Bob

    Hi all, Bit of a problem! My 650GS won't start, it doesn't even turn over - all the electrics are on when I turn the key, but pushing the starter does nothing (except dim the headlight slightly). She's making some weird whirring and clicking noises as well when I turn the key. I was warming...

    So: the 'new bike' had a slight misfire when idling, like a skipped beat, usually at lights, and a slight cough from the exhaust on switch-off. I diagnosed this as lean running. Needed choke on for a good few miles to get going. Ordered a Skewdriver and duly adjusted the carbs - nipped the...
